Apparently Nike has developed Performance Enhancing Contact Lenses (msn.foxsports.com).

    Originally posted by FoxSports
    Known as performance-enhancing contact lenses, they were designed to help hitters pick up the seams on the ball better and to protect the eyes from the sun.


    "They're almost like wearing sunglasses without wearing sunglasses," Roberts says. "I could tell such a huge difference right away that I was willing to give them a shot." Seven years in the making by Nike and Bausch & Lomb, the lenses which will be known in the retail world as MaxSight are so new they have made their way only into a few major league clubhouses so far.


They also come in green Golf Enhancing flavor too!

What an interesting area to try and enhance.

Wow.

I play a ton of softball & golf, & can not wait for these to hit the market!!!

I can't play baseball with glasses (my regular corrective glasses or sunglasses) because of the gap when looking down to field grounders, & I can't play golf with glasses because of the same gap when standing over the ball at address. Since I am forced to wear contacts (which suck for allergy/dryness reasons, but that's another story...) & I can't wear anything to protect my eyes from the sun, I always end up with a huge headache from the constant squinting.

I will be first in line at my optometrist when these babies are available to us regular folk... :-)

Unfortunately, they're not prescription. They're simply designed for color blocking/enhancement to increase the contrast.

They must be available in a perscription format. Brian Roberts already wears normal contacts.

As they are known to say on Fark.com, RTFA.

"They will be available in prescription and nonprescription lenses and will cost about the same as regular contact lenses. They have a life of about three to four weeks, depending on how often they are worn."

No offense.



NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.
